The Louisiana Social Pledge
We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

Dear God (Louis Toliver Jr-Austin, TX)
Let my body be expelled
Of any negativity I’ve spelled.
I purge myself of insecurity from the past.
With your light and community, I fast.
Let all in my life that seeks to harm me
Know right now that you are with me.
For my family and my friends, guide them.
Purge any doubt of me that may stem.
Rejoin me, my God, let your river wash us.
Let nothing but of your love for us to discuss.
For you are who I know you to be.
In this universe, you are all that I see.
